Chanelle Nibbelink

Chanelle is a Canadian-American freelance illustrator and designer

from Los Angeles, currently based in Salt Lake City, Utah.

She works with editorial, publishing, and advertising clients around the world to bring whimsy and fun to their projects. She applies her conceptual-thinking, shape-based style and boundless curiosity to all of her professional and personal projects.  While studying in Canada, Chanelle received her Honors Bachelor of Illustration at Sheridan College. When she's not drawing, you can probably spot Chanelle rollerblading, practicing yoga, learning a new ditty on the ukulele, or falling asleep to a light-hearted book.
